Carbon Farming & Soil Health on Ross Ranch

Technically all farming is carbon farming. This is your chance to hear how different farming practices and management can lead to very different amounts of carbon captured and stored. Hear how implementing a Carbon Farm Plan has an effect on climate resilience, soil health, agriculture productivity, and more! Bring your lunch to this free event and the Land Trust will provide the drinks and some snacks! It is recommended that you also bring a folding chair as we will be meeting under a large shady oak tree near the Ross Ranch Barn located at 11973 Old Oregon Trail, Redding, CA.

Featuring Alicia Herrera, the Senior Partner Biologist for Point Blue
